We attended the event knowing this was to be a TRIBUTE to Billy Joel & Elton John; however, the performers were not professional. Their voices were very, very poor--not the caliber usually presented by the Performing Arts La Mirada.

Description

This Tribute to Sir Elton John & Billy Joel show is a night of hit songs, energetic performances, outrageous costumes, and true rock ‘n’ roll at its finest! Tribute Artist David James (Billy Joel) and Jeffrey Allen (Elton) capture both artists in their high energy, interactive show.

Just like the original tour, each artist performs a solo set with their Incredible rock band then joining together on stage, piano to piano rockin’ out respectively to their greatest hits … also adding funny performance bits, sing-a-long parts, and spontaneous humor. Jeffrey and David capture Sir Elton John and Billy Joel through the years starting in the ’70s to current day.

Jeffrey is especially known for his captivating entertainment prowess and his unbelievable recreation of Elton’s outrageous costumes, and  David, for his dazzling fast and furious finger work showing what a monster piano player Billy Joel really was with songs like “Root Beer Rag” and “Angry Young Man.”
